making everyday beautiful : granny chic charm

Hello... hello? Is this thing on... !?
Gah, blimmin' technology! I don't think this PC was too happy with me calling it 'medieval' last week because since then it got very slow and grumpy before offering up the dreaded 'blue screen of death' when I tried to switch it on one morning! Thankfully my Man was able to provide a very handy wee trick which eventually defeated the said offending blue and I have spent much of the last couple of days backing up on all my files and photos. And what I am more thankful for is that after learning the hard way from a previous iffy hard drive episode I am much more disciplined at regularly (monthly at the least!) backing up my files so I only had a few weeks worth of stuff that needed saving. My dears if you don't have an external hard drive or other way of backing up your stuff and keep thinking 'I really must do something about that'... Do it, do it now! After talking to a sweet friend this week who has lost years worth of images of their artwork that can't be replaced I can tell you that it can be heart breaking! Please do heed this warning.

Anyhoo, while I have been catching up with emails and whatnot as possible I have been taking a wander through our lovely Flickr group 'making everyday beautiful' to soothe my soul just a wee bit. Of course I couldn't resist these picks with their understated granny chic charm. I love the layers of soft cream and pretty neutrals that show off the floral details and mialiv's fabulous crocheted throw. Perfect!
